The appeal of Coventry BS to savers should be blossoming after the relaunch of its Poppy Bond.

Paying 4.30% yearly (4.22% monthly), this two year fixed rate bond is one of the best available in its field.

A minimum investment of £500 is required, but further additions are allowed while the issue remains open.

However, earlier access to the funds is not permitted, so it's important to make sure you can live without the money for the next two years.

In support of the Royal British Legion, 0.20% of all balances will be calculated one month after the bond closes and paid to the Poppy Appeal.

This kind hearted and potentially profitable bond therefore earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
